Pros: "Terrible crew rude and impolite"
Read more about Ryanair
Pros: "Terrible crew rude and impolite"
Cons: "Too claustrophobic, stood in the rain and wind on the tarmac due to loading delay. Not for me, first and last time with Ryan."
Pros: "It's Ryanair. We all know what we signed up for."
Pros: "No issues getting on flight pretty straight forward."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to the delay. Had to buy ticket to get to Barcelona."
Cons: "Drunk and loud people on the flight."
Pros: "We actually made it"
Cons: "The 3hr delay with no explanation or any information whilst waiting in the airport."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Check in was a complete disaster. I only needed to check my suitcase as we had our boarding passes already. It was anarchy and we nearly missed our flight despite being there hours early purely because the check in procedure was so chaotic. Then to top it off, my bag was lost and I was given a stranger’s baggage tag. I don’t know how they will be able to trace my bag with this. It is currently missing in action. Great start to a long awaited holiday!"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Delays, with poor comms. After advising of delays, they called us to form queues at the gate, but it was more than 1.5 hours before we started boarding. That’s 1.5 hours standing in line with no communication! No apologies from staff, and when we did start boarding a member of staff was so annoyed at some passengers who we’re in the wrong queue that they called out to the entire queue, (quote) ‘the little baby Jesus is sending you a sign so look to the heavens and you’ll see a sign which says priority to the left and non-priority to the rigjt, ok?’ Again, this is after keeping us queuing with no apologies and no refreshments for 1.5 hours. In all, we were three hours delayed, and not one member of staff even mentioned it. Staff on board were really poor also: huffing and rolling their eyes at passengers ordering food. Genuinely shocking service."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Take off delayed by over 3 hours, poor communication,noisy boisterous passengers."
Cons: "Delayed at Stansted due to Donald Trump"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding commenced after the given departure time with no sign of a delay on the departure boards. There was no clear guidance for queuing, so the speedy boarding we paid extra for was close to useless, staff then scanned boarding passes without a care for passports. Once on the plane the flight was delayed for 2 hours and only after 45 mins of sitting around waiting for an explanation were we given one by the captain."
Pros: "Cabin crew remained calm and polite"
Cons: "Almost 3 hrs late, and no communication from Ryanair a all (on board and trackers as on time until already 30 minutes post planned departure time, got us all on board an hour late ajd made us sit there for another 90 minutes without any communication fo an hour, no water or snacks etx (30 degrees that day)"
Pros: "The price of the flight was fair. I had booked 4 days in advance and overall the seat was comfy, leg room was good and flight crew okay and apologetic about the delays."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by nearly an hour. The boarding staff member was rather rude and loved talking about how much Ryanair always delayed at the moment, which I felt was odd to be bragging about how the company you're working for isn't performing well and my suitcase was damaged and now has a rather large hole in its side"
Pros: "Best Ryanair flight I have been on. We'll organized from start to finish"
Pros: "Great job! Timely departure and arrival, quick, uncomplicated and easy boarding, pleasant staff."
Cons: "I didn’t know that I had to pay and extra £15 just to get a seat! I thought I already paid enough for my ticket ."
Pros: "With Ryanair, you can only really like the price and the people. To be fair though, m the toilet was clean.."
Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to depart at 7.30 am, but was still refueling after an earlier flight at that time. In a way it was lucky that it was late; if it had been in time, we would have been queueing on the Stansted tarmac in the rain. As it was, the rain had just stopped while we waited at the foot of the aircraft stairs. We actually took off 45 mins late. The new, additional-cost priority boarding is a joke: almost everyone was a "priority". Several passengers didn't understand the long "priority" queue, so joined it only to be turned away at check-in."
Pros: "Boarding was by bus but worked out ok."
Cons: "Chaos over seating families together, one family of two adults and two infants got moved twice, another family was moved once due to allocated seating not putting families together. We eventually offered our seats to try and help out which eventually the reluctant crew accepted. Emergency exits row passenger was allowed to keep their handbag and another had a plastic bag under their seat. (Regulations state no bags at emergency exits). One passenger was chatting using his mobile phone during taxi out. Captain having exited the flight deck for a break then opened the cockpit door and whilst remained open then proceeded to have a nice chat with the cabin crew. Crew were having a bad day. Food was over cooked and nasty. Seat comfort apauling no elbow room and no legroom, still as Ryanair say you only get what you pay for whereas I’d rather have value for money rather than just a cheap and nasty experience."
Pros: "Prompt take off and landed on schedule"
Cons: "Slow baggage recovery due to automation and a small carousel"
Pros: "Hostesses"
Cons: "The rest especially the quick boarding ( 1h30 to wait )"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "Thę policy to make sure you do not sit with your family and have to buy seats to make sure you are all sitting together. The salaries of the staff are the worst in the industry."
Cons: "We boarded after the time it was supposed to take off and once in Barcelona we had to wait about 25 minutes to collect our bags."
Pros: "Well to get in the plane we were waiting almost 1 hour, and now that am writting you waiting again 1 hour for the baggage . I will never again flight with this company never again"
Pros: "I was by myself with a toddler, a pram and 2 hand baggage. down"
Cons: "I thought the would take at least one of them at the gate as usual and I asked if they could help with pram and they said NO! It was a nightmare I had to go down a lot stairs. The only person that helped me it was an old lady! This is a rubbish service I won’t reccomend to anyone with kids!"
Pros: "Nice staff, flight was fine"
Cons: "Extras are ridiculous and couldn’t pay through the website so stressed about getting on the flight. Exorbitant cost of carrying a bottle of wine"
Pros: "all airline staff caring and helpful"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Late incoming aircraft. Delayed boarding as we were told that there was a wait for an assistant to facilitate the boarding of a passenger using a wheelchair."
Pros: "Chatting with fellow passengers in the queue"
Cons: "Lack of regular information regarding delays. Even the occasional "we still have no updates" would have been helpful."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "they where delayed and as a result they made me miss my flight.. to Barcelona i hate this airlines and will never fly with them again"
Pros: "The crew and polo te where very helpful and the plan e arrived on time."
Cons: "Everything was good!!"
Pros: "60 quid return to Barcelona from London. Can't be bad. Comfortable seat and very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "They called boarding a long time before it actually started. Food available was not so good."
Pros: "Normal simple RyanAir flight, as long as one does not eat food or buy a glass of wine at £8each."
Cons: "Priority on-boarding was fine to start with, until the later passengers started bringing on too much hand luggage and long coats stuffed with clothes, and stuff. Cabin Staff just wanted to get away as fast as and gave up preventing these degenerate snowflake freeloaders from stuffing their bits and pieces in several storage cabins along the cabin. Of course these people went to all of the lockers in turn and rifled through them as their stuff was spread across several lockers. Luckily my bag, with it’s many padlocks, was completely locked down, and it survived an attempt to open it. My partner was not so lucky, however. Clearly the cabin staff are under pressure to get moving and keep the passengers happy. But it is obvious to m that these ‘later’ passengers are working a scam to steal from other passengers. RyanAir need to make these argumentative over packers, put their stuff in the hold, without question or get off. Off-boarding was also a joke, the priority boarders at the front of the plane that Paid the most, had to get on a bus to the terminal that was the last to move...so forcing a lengthy queue at passport control, it took over an hour to get into the terminal. As the less exoerienced traveller faffled about with their documents, multiple children, and no queueing system. It was chaos on the Spanish side. RyanAir would avoid the delays by having better trained assertive staff, and a little better administration on the ground to ensure that priority boarders get what they paid for. Otherwise I might as well fly SwissAir, or Lufthansa, which are only a 15% price point away. [after seat booking and other RyanAir add on costs.] Passenger===Disappointed [and literally was robbed in flight.]"
Cons: "Having to pay extra for everything!"
Pros: "Great price to Pisa. I was asleep the entire flight so I didn't suffer too much from the seating"
Cons: "Lack of seating in boarding area"
Pros: "great service, no turbulence"
Cons: "delayed by an hour which we only found out about when we went to the gate."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seats"
Pros: "Good leg space."
Cons: "Charging processing fee if checking in is not done online before you arrive at the airport."
Pros: "The price of the flight and convenient travel times kept making their flights more attractive. The flight itself was very nice and comparable to any other airline despite comments I had read about steep lift offs and advertisements blaring the whole time. None of that happened."
Cons: "Of course the price of the Ryanair flights is what lures you in., but just about EVERYTHING else after that is stressful with this airline. All their rules must be followed precisely or you'll pay through the nose. After painstaking finding the right sized roller bags and under seat sack and making sure I was well within the weight limit, they never measured or weighed either of them. I also saw plenty of carry-on luggage way bigger than mine come on board and go into the overhead bins just fine. Kind of pissed me off. The price to check bags is SO SO high, but with the limited weight you can take in the carry-on, you almost have to check a bag unless you're doing a short 3-5 day trip."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "None of the flight attendants had knowledge of the terrorist attackstbat had occurred, and did not acknowledge my fear and uncomfortability in boarding a flight heading towards the terrorist attacks. I would like Ryanair to consider giving me a full refund for this flight due to the poor customer service."
Cons: "3 hour delay! Walked out of barcrlona airport ar 3am!"
Pros: "Cheap, nothing fancy but totally efficient and courteous."
Cons: "Seats are really uncomfortable but for a short flight not terrible."
Pros: "The steward was friendly."
Cons: "Low fare is an illusion. They forced customers to check in carryons that would have been qualified as carryon by other airlines. Any checked in bag cost $35 and there is absolutely no free check in bags. We ended up check in 3 bags for two of us. Service is super slow. In addition, if you are traveling to London, the airport they use is STN which is at least 1 and half hours from the City. There is no Uber available from that airport. Tax cost is $120+. As you can see, no matter how cheap the ticket might seem, it ends up to be very costly, no matter you are talking about money and time. Flight attendant was friendly but the Rome CIA airport service was horrible (that's where they fly out from). You first have to stay in a long slow line to get the check in bag invoice, take it to a payment counter where 3 out of 4 service people were on there phone texting while there is another long and slow line of travelers are waiting to make payment. We almost missed our flight despite the fact we got there 3 hours earlier."
Cons: "The check in was so bad. There were not much info on what to do. They want me to pay around 100 point to check me in to the fligth. When we landed the luggage when to a band that where not in the same building and they took around a half hour to help us out. We have to walk for like 10 minutes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane seemed incredibly old, like nothing I've seen before. They wanted to charge us 50 pounds to check in our luggage at the airport. I never received an email about needing to check in to the flight online. Luckily we arrived early enough to the airport for the customer service desk to let us know we only had 20 minutes to check in on our mobile devices. The landing of the plane was also the worst I have ever experienced. Everything was so unorganized and uncomfortable about this flight and airline. NEVER traveling with Ryanair and will recommend to all friends and family to avoid Ryanair."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Anytime I felt asleep I was poking by the crew member running around the plane to sell food, scratch cards etc. When I asked for a glass of water I received an answer which states that water is impotable. What a shame. They force you to buy whole bottle."
Pros: "We had no problems with our flight"
Pros: "Service costumers disagree"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "The flight attendant was very rude and the way she stared at me because I told her the free spot was for my bag... It hurt me. The flight attendant they should be with a smile on their face and try to help the passengers, not treat them like rubbish."
